cosy

This winter seems long, dark and cold.


Nights are spent by the fire ripping up old clothes


and crocheting them into weird floppy baskets.


i salvaged this from the bin at work


an interesting technique


has anyone seen it before?


you kind of over sew in different colours


then clip the yarn so it makes


sort of a rag rug but with wool

I've never heard of that technique but I love the sound of it -- it's wonderful to learn something new.

And your work and your sister's work side by side on your father's mantle is lovely -- like you both planned your work that way without talking about it!

You can tell you're sisters! Those pots and painting look 'related'!!

Love the things you are making. I used to crochet and even embroider when I was about 10 years old but then somehow my sewing ability just stalled...

Interesting that the painting and the pots have something similar going on, an appearance of dissolving from their solid state.
